Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman weighs in on Jason Garrett’s job status
Jason Garrett’s future as the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach has been a constant talking point so far in the NFL season.
Under his stewardship the Cowboys got off to an unbeaten start, winning their first three games, but have since slumped to a 6-6 record.
However, they still sit atop the NFC East conference and may yet make it all the way to Super Bowl LIV, and Cowboys legend Troy Aikman has claimed he is ‘not worried’ about Garrett’s future.
“I think Jason’s a heck of a football coach,” he said. “I think this is a really hard job, one of the hardest jobs in football… At some point I think there comes a time, unless you’re Bill Belichick in New England, it’s time for a change.

“And that’s been his messaging throughout, and the owner’s talking about getting on a run to win the Super Bowl. And they’ve lost three of their last four.

“You’ve got a head coach who comes down and says we’re going to evaluate the kicker, and then the front office says right after that – probably in a press conference right outside the locker room – that they weren’t evaluating the kicker. All those things have an impact, and it slowly trickles down.
“So, I think there are a lot of factors that have played into this – coaching, obviously hasn’t been great at times in certain situations, players haven’t played great, but the front office hasn’t been great in allowing the head coach to do his job, either.”
